1. Playground Coffee House
Probably one of the most fun coffee shops you can experience in the city of Bristol. Swap your Easirent hire car for a swing in the Playground Coffee House and have a bit of fun with your frappé. As is obvious from its name, the Playground Coffee House is a fun-packed adventure playground for adults and children alike, and is definitely one of our favourite additions to Bristol’s café circuit. Cosy up on one of the Chesterfield couches and play one of your favourite board games with friends – you can even split one of the delicious cakes from the menu.
2. Small St. Espresso
Located in the heart of Bristol old city, Small St. Espresso is a hangout for hipsters and is the quintessential cosy coffee shop. With exposed brickwork, wooden floorboards and furniture, visitors can’t help but feel at ease as they curl up on the couch with a coffee. You can choose from a range of artisan blends and single-origin beans, and guest coffees often appear on the menu to keep you on your toes. Seating in the coffee shop is limited so make sure that you get there early to grab a seat.
3. No 12 Easton
Hailed as serving the best waffles in Bristol, the No 12 Easton is a stylish café and deli in the heart of the city centre. With big, open windows and whitewashed walls, the No 12 Easton is a welcoming establishment that specialises in local, freshly-made produce.
4. Mockingbird Café
The Mockingbird Café is the perfect pit-stop on your Bristol road trip in your Easirent hire car. Specialists in cuisine from the Deep South, diners can expect blues on the jukebox and service with a smile. Take your pick from the extensive menu, which includes American classics such as toast with peanut butter and jelly and delicious buttermilk biscuits. Breakfast is served until 2pm each day, so it’s the perfect place for a lazy weekend breakfast – make sure you try the house baked beans!
5. Ahh Toots
Park up your Easirent hire car and head to Ahh Toots, the curiously named café which is located in St. Nicks Markets’ Glass Arcade. The first thing to grab your attention once you step inside is the selection of beautiful home made cakes on offer. Available to take home with you, or to eat inside, the cakes are one of the main draws of this cosy little tea room.
6. Hart’s Bakery
Located in the Bristol Temple Quarter Hart’s Bakery was opened in 2012 by sour dough expert Laura Hart, and is the go-to place for perfectly baked bread and cakes. The open kitchen layout gives guests the perfect opportunity to learn how the bread is made and to get inspiration for their own baking-adventures. Make sure to check out the menu before you arrive at the bakery as the menu changes daily.
